She would have been one of the interim 612s when the HGTC package, including CCMs, was switching to HGT2 and a separate option for CCMs. Would love to see the window sticker on her. Here is 158062's window sticker with HGTC.

Very pretty 612

Here the option list:



Mine is a younger brother- 158224.

Also with the 133H and very similar options to yours (plus the most important option - the TV tuner ), but in RC and black interior.

It's a beautiful and elegant car, with timeless beauty and class. The sound of the sport exhausts is amazing.

Reliable machine, pay extra careful to the fuel pumps - had to change mine due to leak)

Enjoy it with good health. This forum is an amazing source of info and companionship, allowing us a more pleasant Ferrari experience.

Ferrari caused some confusion calling the package HGTC again because earlier HGTC parts were not compatible with Motronic 7.3.2 fitted to the F133H engine. They switched to the HGT2 nomenclature soon afterwards, with CCMs separate, probably in anticipation of the CCM brakes being standard on the OTO. HGT1 was the Sessanta equivalent of HGT2, introduced much earlier in 2007.

Thanks for the option list. Very nice spec and Grigio Silverstone looks great on any Ferrari.

My VIN is 58639, first registration April 1st 2008

P.S. I have an original (NOS) 6 PCs Schedoni luggage set to sell. Colour is black (with antrazithe ), only the suit bag is red with anthrazite. The cases still have their yellow Cotton dust covers . I live in Germany

Here is what HGTC looked like for the F133F 612s. Yours seems to follow that spec pretty closely, except possibly the F1 software. Ferrari changed the F1 software for the late 612s, probably including all F133H 612s, that featured faster and smoother shifting. HGT2 did not include any F1 upgrades. Software changed again when the OTO went to the 599 clutch and gearbox case, which the Sessanta also had.

"* * *HGTC Package includes: Carbon-Ceramic Brake Discs, CCM System Mono-block Brake Calipers, Sports Exhaust, Ball-polished Modular Wheel Rims 19″ with Sport Tires, Color Brake Calipers, Specific Suspension Control ECU and Revised F1 Gearbox Software with Shorter Gear Shift times."

Which tires does she have?

Makes sense, because the tires are undoubtedly not the originals. I thought that with the "Sport Tires" noted in the specs, she might originally have come with the Pirelli P Zero Corsas, like the 575M HGTC and 360 Cs. Those wear like erasers and would not have lasted long.

Nice pics. Per Taz, that is one of the transitional 612s - in between Gen 1 and OTO.

It still has F1-A (not F1-S + Manitino). Also has the Bose system and the nice performance upgrade package.

Enjoy.
